On November 6th, over 600 people answered A Call to Compassion for the unborn and their families at the Miami Valley Women's Center 2015 Gala Fundraising Event.
We are praising God for another record-breaking Gala - over $300,000 has been donated or pledged to help us in our mission to value life, support families and demonstrate Christ's love. That's $50,000 more than our goal! 41 individuals and couples became new monthly partners with the MVWC.
Our Keynote Speaker, John Ensor, reminded us that the battle for life that is waging is not new, but now it's our turn. He challenged us to commit to crossbearing for the childbearing.
Thank you to all who helped make this year's Gala a success!
Keynote Speaker, John Ensor
For over twenty years, John, an ordained evangelical pastor, has served in the pregnancy help movement as a leader, speaker, writer, and trainer. In 1991, John led the Boston-area Christian community to establish a network of six ultrasound-equipped pregnancy help centers. In 2006, he joined Heartbeat International as Executive Director for Urban Initiatives and piloted Heartbeat of Miami, a minority-led, ultrasound-equipped, pregnancy help ministry that is now living out the gospel of life among thirty abortion businesses. John is the author of several books (which will be available at the Gala) and currently serves as President of PassionLife (passionlife.org), an organization he is working through to transform the pregnancy help ministry into a true global missions movement. John is passionate about the supremacy of the Gospel and the mission field created by abortion. According to passionlife.org, “pregnancy help centers and maternity homes are the ‘underground railroad’ of our time—helping one woman or couple at a time escape abortion and find God’s provision to parent or place for adoption.”
